Fremantle Oval is pretty relaxed, you can just walk into the change rooms and use the loo. I’m heading to the Fremantle Markets on Sunday to buy some macarons, I might have to wander across the road and check out the game.

You should offer a macaron and a cup of tea to Tom McDonald to see if he's capable of petty amusements.

Great news as it cuts out one long haul flight at a critical time of 3 games in 13 days.

The Perth weather today isn't too bad with the temp being in the high 20's for the game.  So by staying in Perth we should be quite fresh for the Alice game next Saturday.  Unfortunately, the weather there will be in the very high 30's.   

Win today and we will a game and decent percentage clear on top of the ladder:)

For those interested in seeing today's game it is on 7Mate

Can anyone extrapolate on Mifsud’s omission? I know she was quiet last week, but is she coming off injury or something? I thought she was meant to be a weapon.

She played an excellent game last week after being omitted in week 1.  Can be  real weapon and too good to just leave out. 

At a guess - Mifsud is omitted due to match-ups or to keep her fresh for the Alice game vs Pies 6 days and a long flight there. 

Player management will be really important for the next 3 games (Freo, Pies, Lions) over 13 days to ensure we are fresh for the run home (Carlton, Bulldogs).  Lions, Carlton and Bulldogs will be 8 point games so no chance to 'rest' players then.

Yes sorry my bad, got the weeks muddled up. Indeed it may be player management, let’s hope it’s a shrewd move and not just poor form

Sorry, I didn't mean to correct your post.  Yes, agreed lets hope its not poor form. 

 

 

 

On a different note and confirming @Dees_In_Octoberposting that the team is staying in Perth.  On Wednesday they fly to Alice to do some community work leading up to the Friday game.  http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-02-18/aflw-melbournes-massive-road-trip

Its an all round really good move by the club to freshen the players and repay the faith and commitment to our club sponsor NT.  Plus a rare chance for the team to get away for some bonding.

What a load of rubbish! The Pies v Freo game was shown live on 7 into Melbourne last week.

Seems like Carlton and Collingwood are the only ones to get games live on 7.

Doesn't help when all the Freo players are just about in our forward fifty.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
